Public opinion

The Dept of Energy and Climate Change have commissioned a series of public
attitude tracking surveys to gain an understanding of public perceptions
on all areas of climate change and energy policy.
Wave 1 & 2 were conducted earlier this year, Wave 3 has just been released
and here is an extract on the question of renewable energy developments
concerning on shore wind. It shows a steady trend of two thirds support
for on shore wind development.
